Dan Hunter (Tech Ops Specialist) says:

“INSHUR has allowed me to grow my knowledge of technical systems without a limit. Being a startup, we are always changing, learning and adapting, which has meant that every day can be different. The tech we have used one week could be trumped by something new and better the next week. I’ve been given so much freedom to explore both the tech we use and the tech we could use that I am constantly learning – and with our training allowance, I’ve been able to get books and online resources/courses to learn more without needing to wait months for funding approvals.”

Transparent leadership

I had never worked in an organisation where the management is as transparent, knowledgeable, ambitious, resilient and compassionate as at INSHUR. I am valued, supported, given wings to fly and even encouraged to develop other relevant skills. There are no limits to what you can achieve; there is a level playing field for all to make a visible impact. I am really happy to be a part of this ingenious family.”

Innovation without limitation

Wayne Thomas (Insurance Product Manager) says:

“Coming from an insurance background and having underwriting experience in companies that have been established for years, I always find it interesting to see how new age technology sits within an old age industry. Equally, being part of something that is innovative and destined to change the landscape of insurance is exciting, particularly as there are no limitations to where we can go!”

“I joined INSHUR about 1 year ago and I can genuinely say my life has transformed. From gaining autonomy in my role, to being trusted to balance my personal and work life in a healthy way, and everything in between – joining this team has been the best decision of my career. I’ve read about companies like INSHUR before, I just never got a chance to see it with my own eyes. What stood out to me the most was how the leadership team handled the pandemic. Putting the wellbeing of its team members ahead of anything else is truly admirable. Being given the flexibility of creating a schedule that works best for each person and the heavy emphasis on wellbeing and work/life balance not only creates a great work environment, but it also motivates the team to deliver high quality work.”

“Lots of companies have values, but INSHUR is one of those rare ones that really tries to live by them and it cares about its staff and their wellbeing.

Chris Gray (CTO) says:

“What we are doing is game changing. I’ve worked on 50+ projects in the public and private sector over the years labelled as “disruptive” and they haven’t come close to what we are doing. We’re reinventing a thousands year-old industry to work how it should do and we have total freedom to deliver the absolute best platform with a brilliant team. I’ve never worked anywhere with such passion and laser focus on changing our customer’s lives for the better.
